Internet of Things (IoT)
High-throughput data pipelines to process massive amounts of messages sent by thousands of connected devices.
“Mr. Vidal came to work with us at a time when we were under a very heavy workload. We were building high-throughout data pipelines to process a high volume of Vehicle Telematics messages in real-time. His contributions, from the technical point of view, were very well received. It was obvious from the beginning that he was very experienced not only in Python but also in DevOps and Cloud Engineering in general. He had fantastic refactoring skills, emphasising readability, and simplicity.”
A few side projects I’ve built
Selected for the “Google Cloud for Startups Program”
We live in an age where computing power has become ubiquitous. Nowadays, most people have computers with a power that they don’t even grasp on a daily basis.
At the same time, many applications are composed by containerized micro-services that interact with each other in a very defined way. This combination is a perfect match in our eyes, and we believe it’s the ideal time to start using that wasted computing power so users can make some profit.

Simplecoin is a “simple” (just 2 main files), yet quite “feature-complete” blockchain implementation in Python that tries to replicate other mainstream digital-coins for “learning purposes”. Some of its main features are:
- Multi-node network resistant to outages.
- Persistent blockchain and node’s state (one file per node)
- Functional “Proof of Work” implementation with dynamic difficulty.
- Intelligent “concensus” between nodes to detect and replace “corrupted/tampered blockchains”.
- Integrity check of account’s balance before processing a transaction.
Sentimentio is a Jamstack web app that performs API-based Sentiment Analyses. Some of its main features are:
- Blazingly fast static pre-rendered frontend using Next.js.
- Auto-scalable API Endpoints based on Serverless functions.
- Integration with Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services.
- Integration with Microsoft Azure Table Storage.
Technologies: Next.js & React.js & Node.js
PokerInsights is a Poker statistics tool. Based on the cards in your hand, board and starting-hand range, it gives you real-time insights of your situation in every turn. Some of its main features are:
- “Starting Hand” range saves.
- “Flopped Cards” and “Dead Cards” filtering system.
- Real-time Combos and Figures analyses.
- “Made-Hand” and “Draw-Hand” Equity calculator.
- “Made-Hand” and “Draw-Hand” expected value (EV) matrices.
Technologies: Django & React
Battle For Castile
Battle for Castile is a multi-player fantasy card game based on a fictional universe set on the kingdom of Castile (Spain) during the 13th century.
It’s built on a micro-services infrastructure, fully scalable, and deployed on Kubernetes. Micro-services are connected using a “producer-consumer” approach by using Queues, which makes them highly resilient to sporadic peaks on the number of users playing.
Players use a CLI tool to play the cards, construct the combos, and fight each other. This CLI will be in charge of communicating with the infrastructure and display the updates to the interface.
Technologies: Python3 & Kubernetes
A universal API for Cloud Storage providers. Currently supports:
- Amazon AWS S3
- Backlaze B2
- Microsoft Azure Blob Storage
- DigitalOcean Spaces
- Rackspace Cloud Storage
- Wasabi Object Storage
Use the same API to communicate with every Cloud provider.
